Lake Amistad's original guide, B.A.S.S. Bassmaster Elite Series fisherman, and 2020 Bassmaster Classic contender, Ray Hanselman Jr., is a full-time professional Lake Amistad native fisherman with over 30 years experience and 20 years of guiding experience on Lake Amistad, specializing in black bass and perfecting the latest tournament techniques.
One of the most versatile fishing guides in Texas, Ray is equally happy helping a father-son duo catch their first limit on Lake Amistad, or a seasoned tournament fisherman absorb the finer points of a new fishing technique that would normally take several trips to perfect. His obsessiveness with details will be immediately appreciated.
Ray has had a very successful tournament career fishing in the FLW Forrest Wood Cup, Basschamps, and currently in the B.A.S.S. Bassmaster Elite Series. Ray has appeared numerous times on Fishing and Hunting Texas, Americana Outdoors, The Chevy Sportsman, Buckmasters, Bone Collector, and Trophy Hunters TV. Various articles in BassMaster, Texas Fish and Game, Honeyhole, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and Texas Monthly have featured Ray as an excellent fisherman and premier guide.
